Research Grand Rounds: Hypothyroidism Treatment: The Basics and Beyond – January 17, 2020

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by MedStar Health Research Institute and Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and bring together the MedStar Health community for a learning experience focusing on a different topic each month.

On behalf of the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science, and MedStar Health Research Institute, you are invited to Clinical and Translational Research Grand Rounds on Friday, January 17, 2020 from 12:00 Noon pm to 1:00pm. The speaker will be Jacqueline Jonklaas, MD, PhD. The Talk is titled, “Hypothyroidism Treatment: The Basics and Beyond”. Grand Rounds will be held at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center True Auditorium (East Building, 1st Floor) rather than in the CTEC Auditorium. Lunch will be served at 1pm.

Dr. Jonklaas is Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University, Co-Director of the Participant and Clinical Interactions component of the GHUCCTS, and Director of the Clinical Research Unit at Georgetown. Dr. Jonklaas obtained her MD, residency, and fellowship training at Georgetown University. Her NIH-supported clinical and translational research and patient care both focus on management of thyroid cancer and on the assessment and treatment of hypothyroidism.

Her research spans from early molecular work through biomarker studies, novel therapies, clinical trials, and patient reported outcomes and then to translation into clinical practice via her leadership of the guidelines committee of the American Thyroid Association.
